NOTES

 

The information on the cover of this LP suggests a Durban based recording: Olympia Studios, distribution by Roopanand Brothers in Durban and a photograph which looks remarkably like it was taken in Durban's Botanic Gardens. Strangely the LP has two different catalogue numbers: DRBLP 1011 on the cover and KLP 1144 for the label. Kohinoor the name of the label is not mentioned on the cover. Kohinoor is the name of the famous Johannesburg-based record store, owned by Rashid Vally, but the store is not related to this label.

Durban-based Olympia Studios, was a production studio supplying programming to Springbok Radio. The studio was founded by Henry Diffenthal in 1966.
